This is a sweet version of an Impossible Pie. It's very easy to make and can be made successfully using a glutenfree flour blend. Serve chilled. This tart has a moist dense texture with great flavours. Really any combination of citrus can be used for this recipe -lemons, limes, madarines, orange *To make this dish gluten free- ensure gluten free flour and icing /confectioners sugar are used*

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup caster sugar (aka superfine sugar)
  • 12 cup plain flour or 12 cup gluten-free flour
  • 100 g slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • zest of one orange
  • 14 cup orange juice (1 to 1.5 oranges)
  • 12 cup lemon juice (1 to 2 lemons)
  • 125 g butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees centigrade.
  2. Grease a 24cm pie dish. (The pie will totally fill this dish). You can use a smaller pie dish with high sides or any oven-proof dish large enough to take the mixture.
  3. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process for one minute.
  4. Pour mixture into the prepared pie dish and bake 30-40 minutes. When cooked the top will be golden and the filling should be just a little wobbly when the dish is shaken.
  5. The tart will continue to set as it cools. Serve the tart chilled and dust with icing sugar just prior to serving.
  6. (Note: to toast the almonds- add them to a dry non-stick frypan and stir over heat until lightly golden and toasted.).

This is delicious! However, mine separated into two layers - a bottom custardy layer and a top coconut/almond topping...I'm thinking I may not have processed it long enough?

Very nice dessert! The citrus and coconut flavors work well together. I love the crunch of the almonds! I used fluten-free flour with great results.

Very tasty and easy to prepare. I only used 3/4 cup of sugar and found it sweet enough. All the family gave it thumbs up-not just coeliac member
